ANACOSTIA: WASHINGTON BALLPARK TRANSIT-ORIENTED
REDEVELOPMENT DISTRICT Washington, D.C.
MGA provided land-planning services for a 7.0 million S.F. development in the Washington Ballpark Redevel- opment District in Washington, D.C. The site, which surrounds a new major league baseball stadium, is adjacent to the Southeast Federal Center and is situ- ated along the Anacostia River. It contains several Washington, D.C. Metro stops that were major factors in the development of the plan. The program includes approximately 1.0 million S.F. of retail, restaurant and entertainment facilities that will make the area a desti- nation even when the ballpark is dark. It also contains 1.0 million S.F. of office buildings, and approximately 5.0 million S.F. of hotels and residential space, with be- low-grade parking for 8,000 cars. The development is organized by a series of major landscaped open spaces with fountains, pools and other water features that thematically link the project with the river. In ad- dition, the riverfront is extensively redeveloped with an esplanade interspersed with parks, a small marina and a boathouse. The housing is concentrated in two sec- tions of the site: one internal to the site above retail space, and the other in dramatic buildings with views of the river.
